Claudia Esteve

Board Member

An Art Historian and a nature lover, Claudia firmly believes in the healing power of beauty and kindness. She is certified by the Open Dialogue UK Foundation Training (2020) and by the National Empowerment Center in eCPR (2021). Claudia is a founding member of the JAEC Foundation, based in Switzerland, and the Asociación JAEC, based in Spain.

Claudia believes there is still a tragic misconception and dangerous stigmatization of “mental illness.” She holds that the current mainstream medical paradigm of diagnosis and the widespread pharmacological treatments further aggravate the situation. In 2019, Claudia founded JAEC, the Justice, Action & Education in Compassion Foundation. Its mission is to promote alternative treatments to the biomedical model, strongly focusing on Open Dialogue.
